Question:
What is the life expectancy of Fujifilm CD-R and CD-RW Audio discs?

Answer:
As with any recordable media product, the answer to this question is very dependant on the way the product is handled, the condition of the equipment in which it is used, storage conditions, etc. CDs should be handled carefully to avoid scratching or damaging the disc, in order to achieve optimal life expectancy and performance. Under typical conditions, long life can be expected from both the CD-R and the CD-RW discs. For archiving, the CD-R will last from 70 - 100 years, and the CD-RW will last for at least 30 years. Tests have shown the Fujifilm CD-R and CD-RW product offering over one million read passes, and the CD-RW can be recorded at least 1000 times.
